Celosia caracas, also called the Cockscomb plant because of its flowers, shaped like an upright fluffy plume and brilliant purple-pink in colour. They appear in mid-summer above clumps of oval green leaves, and remain until mid-autumn. The cut flowers can be dried for use as long-lasting flower arrangements.
Celosia caracas is a half-hardy annual. It needs a site in full sun, and will cope with most soil types provided they are well drained.
The flowers are purple spikes. This celosia can grow up to 30cm in height and 50cm in spread after around 1-2 years. It is hardiness level h1c (5c) and is best suited to well drained soil. Grows optimally under full sun.
